Outlook 2007 Deployment

Using the Office Customization tool for packaging a deployment of Outlook 2007 in System Center Essentials 2007 the first run of the Outlook after the install/upgrade prompts the user for; a) whether or not to limit Office Search help to the local system or connect to the Internet and, b) RSS feeds. In the case of RSS feeds I explicitly set the feaure to be disabled using the OCT. I managed to get the initial run prompts down to these two from the original four prompts. Does anyone have a solution? I have searched on-line but did not find a way to suppress these two prompts.

If I remember from when I build our office install... you should be able to disable the search ... thing ... from the OCT. Do you have the admin guide?

I had previosly disabled RSS in the OCT and tested by repushing to the same machine after deleting Outlook 2007. This was probably not smart as it likely retained the RSS setting in the registry from the previous install. I deployed to a machine that never had the Outllok 2007 install and the RSS prompt is gone. Also...ApparentlyI wasn't that clear regarding the the Search thing. It is the Privacy Option pop-up. As of now this is the only pop-up I am getting after the push...any ideas?

Well, I answered my own question... the following Microsoft document offers a solution to suppress the Privacy Option first run pop-up:


Here is the section in question for anyone interested:

Suppress the first-run Privacy Options dialog box

1.In the left pane of the OCT, under Features, click Modify user settings.

2.In the tree view of the OCT, open Microsoft Office 2007 system, open Privacy, and click Trust Center.

3.In the details pane, double-click Enable Customer Experience Improvement Program, click Enabled, and click OK.

4.In the details pane, double-click Automatically receive small updates to improve reliability, click Enabled, and click OK.

5.In the tree view of the OCT, open Microsoft Office 2007 system, open Tools|Options|General|Services Options, and click Online Content.

6.In the details pane, double-click Online content options, click Enabled, and in Online content options, click Search online content whenever available.

7.Click OK.
